Falcon Closure Updates

Peregrine closures 2015

Here’s a quick rundown on the peregrine nesting situation as a of 5/26/2015 at select areas.  As always, if a peregrine is aggressive toward you consider leaving the area regardless of closure status.  If a cliff is not listed, there is no ban in effect.

Marshfield Mt (Marshfield) – pair present and incubating at the 2013-14 eyrie on the far northwestern portion of the cliff (R Schiff, B Boedecker)

Bolton Notch – Upper Upper West (Bolton) – pair present and appears to be favoring a new ledge on the upper cliff.  Cliff is closed to climbing. (J LoCicero, M Fowle)

Bone Mt (Bolton) – reports of pair present by rock climbers; single bird observed in early and late May (M Fowle)

Smuggler’s Notch (Cambridge) – pair present; no confirmation of nesting location (J York)

Snake Mt (Addison) – pair present, but was not observed on a recent visit.  Southern cliff top is closed (R Payne).
